Excellent food in a nice atmospheric Italian restaurant

Visited this Italian restaurant after a long car journey. We were both delighted with the quality of the food and at very reasonable prices. Seafood pasta was very fresh and hot...perfect for our needs. Place has a nice atmosphere and the staff attentive.

Having read earlier reviews which were quite favourable booked at short notice for mothers day (same day) and when we got there found out why it was so easy to book. The staff and service was friendly and helpful but the quality of the food was very average

This is an excellent little gem in Egham high street. The food is incredibly tasty, the menu has good variety of Italian food and they accommodated our party or 25 with ease. Definitely recommend it and will be going back for more.

Well, our 10th visit, & it's been FAB every time. The food is delicious, freshly prepared & well presented. The staff (I think owners also) are really nice. I tried the ribeye this time..... &..... well words escape me! A little grappa as a digestif afterwards, perfect.

if I want a local Italian restuarant this is the one for me! The food is as good as anything Italian I have sampled anywhere. The service is always excellent. It was the busiest I have seen with a rowdy birthday bunch last night but this didn't detract from the excellent food & service

It's at the wrong end of the high street for passing trade but is very good for the price. It shouldn't be so empty at times. The waitresses are always friendly and the standard of food is very good. The Penne con Carne is very good and so are the Pizzas. Always good for a quick lunch if you say... More
